Which Selling Platform is Best?

I am working on a list since 2004 that I think would be salable. It's publicly available contact information for radio, TV, magazines, syndicates, newspapers, book publishers and agents. I'm a freelancer and I originally started it because I wanted to be able to reach these sources to interest them in my content. But I realized it could be a product. [more inside]

Microsoft Publisher Database Problem

I had a large address list in Microsoft Publisher 2003 I used for address label mail merges. It resided on a Windows XP3 Service Pack 3 machine. I upgraded my machine to Windows 7 32Bit and MS Office 2007. Mail merge address list Edit attempts now says "An operation cannot be completed because of database engine errors" report. Any suggestions on exporting that data or synchronizing to the new database form? Can I extract the data from this old database into some other format and import it to the new Publisher...or do I have to...eek... re-enter all the data and create a new database?

Font Tracking: Publisher vs. Pagemaker Values

I have a MS Publisher Document that I need to change the font tracking on. The change in the tracking must correspond to -50 and -25 tracking settings in PageMaker, but the Publisher expresses tracking values in terms of percentage. Anyone have a guess as to what percentage in Publisher would equal -50 and -25 in Pagemaker?

Good publisher of Italian classics?

Good publisher of Italian classics? I ask only this: the text is as it was first written, the book is free from the pollution of study notes. I suppose I'm looking for the Italian equivalent of England's 'Oxford University Press', or Germany's 'Reclam'.
